First up, a "meme" or "quiz" or whatever they're calling them these days. Been awhile, so here goes (mercilessly stolen from budgie_uk
, who ruthlessly nicked it from someone else, who no doubt-- right, you get it):1. My username is ______ because ______.
. Because way back in 1994, I started DJing and my older, wiser friend Greg said I needed DJ Name. Our first handbills (printed at his work) said DJ Syn. So original, I know! I ended up changing it in January of '95 to "synabetic" because 1) I love synthesizers 2) I became a Type 1 Diabetic that month, 3) I was already calling myself DJ Syn or something. Since my buddy's DJ Name was DILLIGAF, our sweet-awesome names looked better together. Eventually I changed my dj names... Aerobikfyrewretch (don't ask), Kaustik Synabet (once again...), and then to "dj" Menschrek. The latter was inspired while I was reading the book Hitler's Willing Executioners
and seeing the German term for "human horror", mensch schrek
. But I've always loved the name Synabetic
, so I still use it. Lots. Now you know. Don't you feel better abut yourself?2. My name is _____ because ______.
Steveill the Weevill
. Because I'm a great big DORK. calling me Stevil started with my friend Christian, and was quickly picked up by my friend Jim (who I affectionately call Jimbaut). Since I have a chronic affliction, I felt "SteveILL" was a good route. Weevil goes with Steveill, and an extra "L" is added. Huzzam! Magic, kids. Magic.
Note: That's the name in my profile. My name name was derived from my father's middle name and his father's name. Good times. :)3. My journal is titled ____ because ____.
Die In a Fire Presents...
. Because I was one of the first people to use that term (die in a fire), if not the first on the internet (who knows, really?). It's something I picked up from engel
long, long ago. Like 8 years ago. I'm sure someone has used it before me-- for nothing is original. But I lay claim to getting it out there. Yes, yes, fear my modesty. It's all I got since innumerable weenies have taken credit for hard work I've done in the past. Point is I felt it made sense at the time to entitle my LJ that. Can I get an amen?4. My friends page is called ____ because ____.
This is what it sounds like... when Gnomes cry
. Because Gnomes
rule, that's why.5. My default userpic is ____ because ____.
The Judge Dredd
one you see there. See it? Of course, I might change it one day in the future. Then that will make this very confusing... muahahaha. So, yeah, Judge Dredd is one of my all-time fave characters, and so there you go. I got it from a wallpaper found on the 2000 AD site
And there you have it.
Next up is yet another social networking site. Why is it cool? I dunno, I just dig it. It also allows you to upload up to 100 songs. Yeah, I know, like wow
, huh? If you get the time, check out needcoffee.com's Gabfest
. If you join up, be sure to add me
. Yes, I realise there are a gazillion networking sites etc etc etwhateveruh. So, join up at your peril... I suppose. I haven't done Twitter, yet. I'm still not convinced I like it. I'm sure it has its uses. Or something along those lines.
I need to start fining myself for saying "and / or something". Maybe I'll fine myself tacos. Then you lot will never be rid of that overused phrase. *insert
Steveill laugh here*
Having read all of the above, you can almost certainly count on the fact you have been enriched in a transcendent way.
YAY! I GET A TACO!!!
